I am very sorry to inform you that Alistair Graham died on Wed 28th July 2010 in hospital following a fall at home.
Alistair was a former Captain of Kingston Rowing Club including the 1981 season when the Men's squad at Henley Royal Regatta reached three finals, winning the Goblets, the Prince Philip and narrowly losing in the Britannia Cup - the best results in a century. The Men's Pair and Coxed Four together with the Women's Double Scull of Astrid Ayling and Sue McNuff went on to represent Great Britain in the 1981 World Championships, a level of club rowing success unprecedented before or since.
As well as being a long standing and popular stalwart and coach of Kingston Rowing Club, Alistair was also a Vice President at Dittons Skiff and Punting club, Punting being a sport about which he was passionate. He will be much missed and I am sure you will wish to join with me in expressing sincere condolences to his surviving sister and brother, Deirdre and Charles and his nieces Victoria and Emma-Jane.
